Founded in 1985, we are a Winchester based transport heritage charity whose volunteers aim to preserve the memory of R Chisnell & Sons, trading as King Alfred Motor Services.
We preserve all known remaining vehicles which worked for King Alfred - some 14 to be precise! We show our vehicles and often give free rides at events across the South.
We meet regularly to celebrate our work and to enjoy the vehicles we preserve. Our friendly group is always welcoming of new members and are always keen to share!
